Whites satisfied with racial progress

from the Financial Times

According to a survey by the University of Chicago, 79 per cent of the US's blacks believe either that they will not achieve racial equality in their lifetime, or that it will never be attained. In contrast, almost two-thirds of whites believe it has already been achieved.

I can't fail to reference William Kristol's op-ed following Obama's Philadelphia speech on race in March, when he wrote, "Over the last several decades, we’ve done pretty well in overcoming racial barriers and prejudice."

Now, if you had to choose between America's two favorite races -- aka "white" and "black" -- which would you guess William Kristol belongs to?
